Who will be the breakout U.S. national team stars in 2017?

Bruce Arena tells ESPN FC's Taylor Twellman he has enjoyed working with the players in camp with the U.S.

In many ways, Bruce Arena's version of the United States men's national team will look similar to the squad that took the field during 2016. Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore, Fabian Johnson, Christian Pulisic and a few others are surefire starters, while another handful of players are locks to make the game-day roster. But that doesn't mean there's not room for new faces or changes to the depth chart.

Here are 10 players who could dramatically improve their national team standing in 2017.

The United States men's national team will kick off their 2017 campaign with the traditional January camp, which opens on Friday. It's a squad in the midst of a rebrand with new (and old) manager Bruce Arena now at the helm after the up and down Jurgen Klinsmann era came to an end in November. There's plenty to accomplish, and little time to do so. Here are 17 goals for the Americans in 2017.

Arena, who replaced Jurgen Klinsmann in November, picked no fewer than 32 players -- all of them MLS-based -- for the squad that will gather in Carson, California, next week ahead of home friendlies against Serbia on Jan. 29 (4 p.m. ET, ESPN2) and Feb. 3 vs. Jamaica.

In short, it's large. The previous...

The FC crew disagree with Bob Bradley's views of why Swansea's ownership decided to let him go.

In the days following his firing as manager of Swansea City, Bob Bradley ran through the gamut of emotions. There was disappointment that his bosses didn't stick with the plan agreed when he was hired, plus frustration that he had just 85 days in charge.

But in a wide-ranging interview with ESPN FC, conducted in the days after he was dismissed, Bradley also gave some insight into his thinking, his experiences with the players, his hopes for the transfer window and even his approach to stabilizing...
